Got chalk? Ninth grader Lexi Whysong prepares for her bar routine by putting chalk on her hands. Chalk is used on bars to allow the gymnast to get a better grip on the equipment and is typically used for the uneven bars.

Freshman Lexi Whysong performs giants on the uneven bars. A giant is when the gymnast goes into a handstand while rotating 360 degrees around the bar.

1, 2, 3, flip! Freshman Lexi Whysongs dismounts the uneven bars to finish her routine. The Altoona Area High School held the home meet on Jan. 5 at the fieldhouse.

Ninth grader Sidnie Yoder waits for the judges to allow her to begin her routine. Balance beam was the only event Yoder competed on at the meet.

Eyes on the beam! Lexi Whysong does a back walkover on the balance beam. The beam is only 4 inches wide, so concentration and balance is very important in order to stay on.

Freshman Grace Osmolinski prepares for her first tumbling pass in her floor routine. Floor was the last event Altoona competed in during the meet.

Keep your balance! Freshman Sidnie Yoder catches her balance after a turn on the beam. Beam was the second to last event Altoona competed on.

Ninth grader Alexis Whysong begins her floor routine with the judges paying close attention. Floor routines can last up to 90 seconds with the choreography made in advance.

Jump! Lexi Whysong demonstrates a right leap on the beam. Altoona had a victory over Ridgeway high school at the meet.

Ninth grader Sidnie Yoder does a handstand on the edge of the beam. The AAHS gymnastics team currently has a record of 3-0.
